Le Bouillon left Agnan to survey the class as he went out. Clotaire thought he was crzy because Agnan wanted them to do math. No one would do it and M Dubon made Clotaire do lines. Joachim was lookout and Clotaire wanted Agnan to eat books and stuff. Thats a phrase to get hit. Clotaire wanted to go play with the ball and stuff. The Bouillon came in and hit Joachim who was by the door on his nose. He took Joachim and brought him back. He went outside again after telling everyone to learn to be like Agnan.

Alceste invited the whole class to an empty lot not far from his house to play soccer. He wanted to play because his father gave him a brand new soccer ball, and he thought it was going to be a great game. Agnan was chosen as referee because he was the first in the class. People didnt like him too much and when he wore his glasses, he wouldnt get hit. That was a good combination. Plus, no team would choose him because hes not that strong and he cries a lot. When he wanted the whistle, Rufus said he cant give it because it is important to him because its something he cherishes. So, Agnan said he would tell Rufus when to blow the whistle. To make the number fair because the division wasnt, Maixent was chosen as the referee who waved the flag anytime the ball went out of bounds. He could run fast because his legs were long and had dirty knees. As far as captains went, everyone except Alceste wanted to be a captain. Alceste wanted to be a goalie because he didnt like running. Eudes said he wanted to be captain because he is the strongest and he would punch people if he didnt get his way. Geoffroy said he should be cause he is well dressed and his father is the one who buys the equipment. He got hit by Eudes for saying that Rufus said that if he wasnt captain, he would make his father put all of the kids in jail. Nicholas came up with a smart idea: use coins to draw at random at who would be captains. He used Joachims coins. There were two but the first got lost int the grass and they couldnt find it. Joachim was the one who lent it and wasnt happy that it was lost. Geoffroy promised that his father would repay the price of the coin. Nicholas and Geoffroy were picked as captains. Both wanted Eudes to be captain because when he ran with the ball, no one could stop him. He didnt play well though. Joachim found his coin and was happy, but he lost his new coin when they needed to see who would get Eudes. Geoffroy got Eudes. They wanted to play, but there were disputes so it wasnt easy to start. They had a fight on where players should stand. Eudes started hitting the players on his team to get into place. Nicholas team was having the problem; Eudes threatened them that he would hit them. Then, Agnan told Rufus to blow the whistle to start. The sun hit Geoffroys side and he got mad. He said why does his team have to be on the side with the sun hitting them? Nicholas said if you just close your eyes and try to like it, hell play much better and it wont be a distraction. People started fighting. Rufus started blowing the whistle, but Agnan tells him when to do that. Nicholas kept fighting with Geoffroy and ripped his shirt. But, he can get more. Joachim wasnt involved in the fight, just trying to find his coin. Nicholas thought they were going to have so much fun. Finally, Alceste told everyone to stop. Eudes told Alceste, you wanted to play, so we will play. If you want to say something, say it at half-time. Thats when Alceste realized that he didnt even have a ball. They cant play because he forgot it at his house.
